Artist Showcase Wearable Fiber
All Showcase Media Categories
Whether wearable fiber is high fashion, simple practicality or pure flamboyance, handcrafted clothing is the outward expression of your own, very individual sense of style. Textiles used for wearable art are usually made of natural materials, like wool, silk or cotton and encompass a variety of techniques; most often hand-weaving, knitting, dyeing or painting. Wearable fiber often sports distinctive touches, such as hand made buttons or beads, metallic threads and fringe, luxurious tapestries or velvety rayon chenille. Look for special techniques, like ikat weaving or shibori dyeing, and accessories, like handbags, neckties, hats or scarves.
